Including other people/organization's code in your repository?


I hope this isn’t a rhetorical question, for example something like jQuery. If I wanted to make the ‘workflow’ faster of downloading code-bundle and it includes jQuery in there. I clearly am not claiming that code is mine, is that okay?

I should look at the public license or something?

There was another thing like this I had recently where my project used some one else’s code and I was tempted to include it in my repository as a bundle clearly stating the code wasn’t mine. Instead of saying “you’ll need to download this code from this website” in the middle of a read me doc.

It does seem rhetorical and right now I’ve just defaulted to not including it and mentioning you’ll need this code here and point to the website url to download.
